Old Stag Bishop StThe stag is a male red deer in its prime, i.e. in its fifth year. Most of the signs refer to hunts, stag hunting having been a favourite royal sport in the past. Occasionally it is a heraldic reference. In 1835 see the BEERHOUSE, Bishop Street. Until 1881 it was referred to as just the 'Stag'. In 1982 it was 'instantly recognisable as a Mitchells and Butlers lounge bar created out of what was once a three-roomed pub.... there's an impressive dark wood surround and some genuine mirrors advertising Bass No1 Barley Wine and Atkinsons'. In 2010 The Stag was sold by Punch Taverns to the next door funeral directors, A. Pargetter & Son. It was to reopen as a free house under new licensees, Clive Hunt and Paul Barrow.
